Maps not saving in 2.4

Post by Gerbil » Fri Aug 26, 2011 1:17 pm

In 2.4 I have tried saving maps by command line and through the gui as both BZW and OBJ and while the display text indicates the world is saved, they are not to be found anywhere on my hard drive. Reverting back to the games previous versions allows me to save in both manners with no issues.

Is it just me?

I'm running the 64-bit version on Windows 7.

You sure it's not just saving it to the new location? Look under C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\BZFlag\worlds\

Well that could be it. I have '"show hidden folders" enabled and did the windows search but I'll go lookie in person. Thanks. I know that has to be documented but when I haven't read it then it then doesn't count.

Update:
Well sure enough you managed to sneak on my comp and put them there when I wasn't looking so you would seem right. I'm onto you and you better stay outta my office buddy! I'm not sure why Windows isn't seeing them as I have searched other App directories before with no problems. I'm sure you must have done something to make that happen too.
